This report addresses the question of how many economically and educationally disadvantaged children do and do not receive Title I services. The study involves the following: (1) a national representative sample of 242 elementary schools; (2) the documentation of students' receipt of regular and compensatory services provided by Title I in these schools; (3) the administration of academic achievement tests through interviews with parents of 14,158 students of each family's economic status; and (5) the linking of a child's achievement level, family economic characteristics, and receipt of educational services. Results indicate that Title I and other compensatory services are moderately well focused on individual needy children. However, there are many needy students not now being served and some who are not needy but who are receiving Title I services. (Author/AM)
